put our power point on the screen please? >> unfortunately, none of us know how to do it. there it is. >> this power point is pretty much -- we made it ourselves, commissioners. it is our solution to distribution of the youth pass lifeline. you might be wondering, what is the fast pass? it would cost $10 a month, and its purpose is to be given to students who qualify. -why create the fast pass? it would be for the students to have affordable muni access. there are a few main reasons why. >> the first reason why, as you can see on the pie chart, the unified students are strongly dependent on muni. about 70% of the school district students take muni. it is very important for them to have a mode of transportation. the second one is the rising cost of muni. in may, 2009, it was $10. a year later, we see that price double. it is important to have affordable access. the last reason is the high proportion of low income students. 54% of the san francisco students qualify for free or reduced lunch. it is over half of the student body. >> we began the youth lifeline fast pass in february 2010.
about people and families and the appreciation of the human situation and that is, first, 91% of those u.s. born workers in the united states from the 1990's to 2005 were better off because of the immigrant, both documented and undocumented, presence in the united states. their earnings were enhanced by about 2.7%. why? it's complicated and i'll send a link to the commission so you can look at the exciting charts and graphs and do that to your heart's desire. it comes down to a simple idea which is intuitive and you know it. the economy is not a fixed pie. when you expand the labor curve, a simple economist will say the price of labor goes down and we're all hurt. the more people that work here, the more people that are chasing jobs and we're all doomed. wrong. the expansion of the available labor force creates opportunities that did not exist before. you have innovation and entrepreneurialism that increases the actual size of small and medium-sized businesses. they consume and that expands the demand curve. you have a dynamic economy for 90% of u.s. born workers that enhances their wages.

. it's locating and measuring sites where we don't expect differences in the land use and really trying define really some of what's happening. the next one is maybe a little bit far out, but we're talking billions so for that kind of money, maybe we ought to support or look that idea of something out in space just like putting mirrors out there, something that can be taken down if necessary so reflect some energy back into space that we're not getting. >> thank you. brad has a comment. >> yeah, thanks. this whole question of data i think has or needs a very close look by the water management data. when you take the wrapper off of this you see it has lots of warts on it, let me talk about the,nrcs, in the west. i know you all have your own. but i saw a persuasive speech by randy who is quite properly convincing. changes all the way from stainless steel pillows to ten gallons and black pillows of this. vegetationle changes, the lesson here, i think in general and this applies to,usgs, and national weather, we need to make sure the networks are in good enough shape to make these decisio
